Sharp PG-D45X3D Color & Picture Quality
The Sharp PG-D45X3D, as mentioned back in the overview, is one of those DLP projectors that can deliver very good color even in its brightest modes. The first image here was taken with Picture mode set to Standard. Presentation mode is a bit brighter still, but isn't as well balanced, color wise. Use Presentation Mode when you need every last lumen, Standard for best combination of brightness and color. The other modes are Movie, Game, and sRGB. Each of the mode images below were taken with the same exposure, to show relative brightness, as well as color differences.
Below are each of the preset modes. All were taken with the same exposure, which provides you a guide to their relative brightness. Note, that while Game mode is a bit more contrasty than Presentation, it has a bit less green push, and may make an excellent alternative (and it's almost as bright), color wise.
Most impressive though are the Sharp's handling of the reds and yellows. Even in the brightest mode, the PG-D45X3D does very nicely. Easily the best color of the DLP projectors considered in the Education report!
